The Rap Year Book: The Most Important Rap Song From Every Year Since 1979, Discussed, Debated, and Deconstructed is, if you are unaware, a great book by Grantland writer Shea Serrano, the title of which explains exactly what you're getting when you begin reading it. It also made The New York Times Best Seller list. This detailed look at the world of hip-hop leading up to 2014 is apparently about to be turned into a documentary series, according to the author's Twitter page. If this is true, depending on what network of production company picks up this series, fans of hip-hop are in for quite the treat in the near future.

Serrano was clearly excited about this news, taking to Twitter to basically live-tweet his signing of a contract to turn his book into a documentary series, according to The Smoking Section. Check out all of the details on this deal right here:
